After returning to PokerGO earlier this month, new episodes of Poker After Dark continue with two nights of high stakes cash games. Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi makes his first Poker After Dark appearance since 2011, while World Series of Poker Main Event champion John Cynn makes his debut to headline “Rise and Grind” week.

While Cynn picked up his first bracelet in the Main Event, Mizrachi made history after winning his third Poker Players Championship. The victory added to Mizrachi’s already mind-blowing WSOP resume, which also includes a Main Event final table run from 2011.

A diverse group of Poker After Dark veterans and rookies complete next week’s lineups. Farah Galfond returns after playing during “Solve for Hollywood” week, while Justin Young and Maria Ho will each make one appearance during “Rise and Grind” week.
